- Poetry of the 30s: T.S. Eliot to Dylan ThomasCourse start date: Sun 8 Oct 2023
Location on this date: Keeley StreetTutors: Phoebe BraithwaiteWedged between the two wars, the poets of the 1930s were drawn to forces larger than themselves. For poets such as W.H. Auden and Louis MacNeice, war, revolution and the allure of communism dwarfed mere personal anxieties. Others – such as William Empson, Kathleen Raine and Dylan Thomas – found a seam of spiritualism in other, more mystical, even Romantic antecedents. Our course traces these discrepant paths through the decade.
